How to Play the Gambler

A support class for Mage parties!

If you have a party that focuses on using abilities that uses up MP, the Gambler is one of the best Main Jobs to have! It's special abiltiy Jackpot can recover everyone's MP to full! And it only requires you to use Gaming 13 times!

One of the Best Boss Killers

The Gambler's abilities cost money which makes them an inefficient party member to fight with against normal enemies. However, High Roller and Flash the Cash are both strong abilities that can deal massive damage to their targets at the cost of PG (High Roller costs 10,000 PG and Flash the Cash depends on your character's level).

Rare Drop Is Useful against Rare Monsters

Rare monsters on the Overworld can be defeated but they do not guarantee rare drops. Increasing the chance of them dropping those strong but elusive items can ease your late game hunt!

Best Abilities

Rare Talent

It is worth leveling up a Gambler just for this ability alone. Drop rates are low in Bravely Default 2 so having extra rates for these rare items is a valuable thing for your journey.

Spin the Wheel

Most of the Gambler's ability costs Pg, Spin the Wheel ensures that you'll always have Pg to spend and it only costs 1 BP! Have your 3 other fighters fend of enemies while you spam Spin the Wheel to generate an unlimited amount of money!

Pg Guide | How to Farm Money Quickly

Life or Death

Resurrection spells are always single target abilities. Life or Death is one of the exceptions but it comes with the risk of also knocking out the caster. However, if the caster is the only one left in the party, perhaps, getting knocked out is just a matter of time. Life or Death can give your party a second chance to recover from defeat!

Flash the Cash

A flat damage ability that is extremely helpful against durable opponents. It doesn't cost much and if you're farming pg efficiently, the cost should be non-existent. A highly recommended move against bosses!

Dealer's Choice

One of the best abilities in the whole game. Dealer's Choice allows you to use a random effect and this effect varies from inflicting ailments, casting magic, to even multiplying JP or EXP earned after the battle! Beware though as it can fail and kill the Gambler or reduce your whole party's HP to 1!

Bastion

Bastion Job.jpg

Dealer's Choice is a really fun move but due to its risk, spamming it without thinking may end up getting your team killed. With the Bastion's Sanctuary ability, you can negate this negative effect and start using Dealer's choice without fear! Beware though as this combo costs a lot of BP.

Berserker

While this may come as a surprise, if you check the abilities of the Berserker, you'll find out that this is one of the most fun combinations in the game. The Berserker's Free for All support ability allows the character to use offensive abilities while Berserk for free. Free High Rollers? The disadvantage is Flash the Cash will deal zero damage because of the free Pg cost.
